You guys I'm so proud of myself like you have no idea.
I just finished my first knitting piece...EVER!

And I couldn't have asked for a better outcome even if I wanted to. :woot:

I did have a particular hard time sewing the seams together but thanks to "theguywhoknits" and "gotta knit" I was able to figure it out.
Thank you both...you guys rock!!! :muah: :cheering:

And for those interested in the pattern steps here's the link to my blog: http://lexymalfoy.blogspot.com/2009/06/fo-ipod-cover-i-did-it.html

BTW...a friend of mine has dared me to do the Tom Baker scarf from Dr Who and I think I just might take him up on that challenge. :wink:


Till next time,
Lexy

Thanks. I actually saw the buttons at Michaels first before deciding on the yarn. :inlove: It came in a pack with other colors in it too like green, blue, yellow, and purple. :mrgreen:

Thanks hun. :)

Very nice for your first knitted piece!

Thank you. :) I shocked my mom when I was done. She didn't believe me when I told her that I knitted it.


You did a great job!! And that's a very practical project, too!

Oh yeah! That's what I love about it. Although I am thinking of making a few others...just to switch things up from time to time. ;)


What a great job you did! The buttons add a really nice touch :thumbsup:

Thanks hun. I love the buttons. In fact they were what I noticed first. Then I picked out the yarn. :mrgreen:


A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! :thumbsup:

lol. Thank you. :) You guys have been so helpful from the beginning. I'm really grateful for all of your insight and help. :hug:

Hehehe...nope. It's a classic. Although I am making one for my friend who has a itouch and another one for her sister who has a nano. :mrgreen:

That's adorable! Congrats on your first piece! (Just to let you know, my first piece was something like a skinny 5 stitch scarf that ended up at 12 stitches, and looked like crap. Your knitting it sooooo amazing for a first piece!)

Nothing says, "I love my ipod" quite so much as a cozy little cover for it with hearts. This turned out very cute. Good job on the knitting, and the selection of materials to use.

Thanks hun. I'm quite proud of this one. I've actually decided to do another one in a different type of yarn but a bit modified. :mrgreen:
